TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 26 1936 CHICAGO HOG MARKET 10-15 HIGHER CATTLE TRADING MOSTLY STEADY Active Local and Outside Demand Causes Rise in Hog Prices. CHICAGO, UP--An active local and outside demand for iiogs offset the sluggish condition of the dressed pork trade Thursday, resulting in a 10 to 15 cents higher market. The bulk of sales were made at the advance which took the top to S10.85 but late bids were fairly steady and the close was slow. The run totaled 12,000. Pork prices have reflected the condition of the market, recent wholesale quotations ruling easy. Buyers resisted the demands of commission merchants for a rise in cattle prices in early rounds and the market was generally steady. No strictly choice steers were offered and the bulk sold at $7.50 to 59.25 although some loads were held around $10.50. v On the whole cattle prices were back at last week's level even though the total volume of supplies ' was below advance estimates. Better grade steers declined 25 to 50 cents Wednesday under the pressure of heavy receipts. The early lamb trade was slow altJwugh a few bids and sales were 15 to 25 cents lower. Sellers were resisting this downturn by holding their best slaughter offerings above $10.25. The crop of California spring lambs is expected to start market- ward in the next two weeks.

May wheat sold within i/j of a cent of the lowest price since Dec. 10 last year. Weather conditions over the southwest were varied, dust storms being reported In certain portions and snow in others. July, however, held relatively firm. The Oklahoma weekly report said that there had been some heavy showers in the soifih- east portion and while wheat had made slew growth the crop was in fairly good condition. Liverpool held relatively firm. Brumn- haH says seeding of wheat in Argentine wjl] start next week and that the acreage to be planted will be large unless the government makes an announcement that the prevailing minlmums are not to be continued at the close ol the current crop year. Local sentiment continues bearish as the trade in general believes that the dry section of the wheat belt are in restricted areas and that the crop is in generally fair to good condition. Corn--Corn holds steady. Receipts were sroali. only 66 cars, of which 50 were sold on consignment. A few buyers were interested and a large industry is still out of the market.

NEW YORK, (IP)--Automotive and specialty issues took another upward swing in Thursday's stock market, although profit taking held back some sections of the list. General Motors and Chrysler were up about a point each and Allied Chemical, near the start of the final Siour, was 4 ahead. A number of new 5 year highs were recorded in trading which was only moderately active. Gainers up to a point included IT. S. Steel. American Telephone, U. S. Rubber, Simmons, Sears Roebuck, Westinghouse, Case, N. Y. Central, Northern Pacific, Southern pacific and Santa Fe. Among losers of as much were American Smelting, XT. S. Smelting, Bethlenem, Cerro de Pasco and Western Union. The late tone was steady. Transfers aproximated 2,000,000 shares. Wheat at Chicago closed % to 'A of a cent of a bushel easier and corn was 14 to % firmer. The federal reserve ruling on margins, requiring a flat coverage of 55 per cent by both bankers and brokers, apparently had little or no effect on prices. NEW YORK. (.71--Industrial specialties took the lead in the curb market Thursday, numerous issues advancing 1 to 2 points. The general run of oils, utilities and metals displayed a fairly steady undertone, although price changes were narrow. McWJiliams Dredging. Alldvale Steel, Seeman Eros., and Aluminum Co., were among shares in demand at advances of 1 to 2 or more points. Fractional improvement was shown by American Gas. Cities Service, International Petroleum, Lake Shore Mines and Pan American Airways. Electric Bond Shares continued a heavy trading: favorite and advanced Into new 1936 high territory at 25i.j, up ^ on balance. Olson Funeral Held.

Variety in the line of vaudeville entertainment was represented in the acts staged at the Cecil theater Wednesday and scheduled to be repeated for the last times Thursday in tile "Top Hat Revue." "The Great Togo" was a headliner and won the interest and applause of the audience in his slicle- ror-life as well as in his less sensational, but extremely clever stunts with tops, balls and the Japanese devil sticks. Humor was introduced into a juggling act when a collection of cigar boxes refused to i operate with the performer. The sister of Howard Fuller in "Howard Fuller and Sister" belied the title of the weaker sex in her feats of strength. The dancing of Mack and Miller was good as was the blues singing of Anita Muth. Music by Bilfy Martin's band enhanced tiie program. "Next Time We Love" Irom the Ursula Parrott novel. "Goodbye Again." featured Margaret Sullavan, assisted by Ray Millard and James Stewart, in as appealing a bit of heart break as you have seen for some time. Curb Market Bond Market NEW YORK. (JPt--Wide gains in U. S. povernment guaranteed issues Thursday carried loans in this section oi' the bond market to record peaks. Investment experts said the brisk bidding in the guaranteed group was stimulated by the report of the Home Owners' Loan corporation which disclosed that repayment on loans made totaled about 73 per cent. This was bullishly interpreted in the investment community and the buying of the guaranteed issues soon carried over to the direct federal obligations. The fact that local banks were said to be holding on to their positions instead ol sellinp on the advance was counted an important factor In the run-up. Shortly before noon general gains In the governments ranged from around 2-32nds to 10-32nds. New highs were recorded by the Home Owners Loan 2":\s, the Federal Farm Mortgage 3s. and the U. S. Treasury 3Vss Of 1946 and the 3s of 1916. The corporate section was quiet and steady with biddinc confined principally to the medium and tow priced rails. Gainers o£ fractions included Baltimore and Ohio 4^s, Erie 5s, Missouri Pacific 5s and Southern Railway 48, The foreign division was quiet and steady. Produce MASON CITY--For Thursday.

Selwyn Marsh, lying in bed with his head bandaged, looked intently at Thora as he told her he desired to talk to her concerning Sherman Gordon. 'Don't look at me like that," Selwyn told Thora . . . "There's nothing much the matter with my head. It's only hurt on the outside. Sherm is in love with you. Did you happen to know that?" Thora met his intent stare with perfect composure. "He told me so." she admitted calmly. "1 figured he had." Selwyn muttered gloomily. He raised himself on his elbow. "And I suppose you told him that you felt . . . the same way?" "No." Marsh relaxed, let his head sink back again on the pillow. "That's queer . . . and yet I sort of figured it that way. I don't know why . . . maybe it was what I wanted to believe. After all, Sherm has about everything a woman could ask for. Family, money, looks . . romantic notions, I don't doubt. With all that, I don't see why he wouldn't get almost anything he set his heart on." A puzzled look clouded the hazel eyes looking intently at Thora. "Some women ask for more," she said in a low voice. "I know. Women like you . . . but there aren't so many that would. Thora . . . you don't mind if I call you that, do you ?" "No." "I don't often get to talking about myself. But I'd like you to know that I've been in a devil of a state lately. It's you. You sor': of upset things for me. No! Let me finish . . ." He held up his hand. "Maybe I haven't played the game right myself, but women always have succeeded in letting me down. I've had good reason to come to the conclusion that all of them . . . took, you know. Had nothing to give. I suppose that sounds pretty low, to you. I even took it for granted that my daughter was the same way. We've never had very much to do with each other. It was like that, until you came.'' Thora had taken a chair near the bed, after the others left. She sat motionless now, hands folded in her lap. Her eyes were fixed on the shaded lamp on its stand at tie bed's head. Marsh was unable to read the expression on her face in the soft gloom. "I found out that you were different . . much different," he went on hesitatingly. "Even before that day when you told me how you happened to come down into this part of the country. I've never forgotten . . how you had given everything you had for a ... just a friend. And then, you wanted to fight me because you thought I wasn't giving my own girl a fair deal. Tou were ready to fight for Wilma, too. After the way she had treated you. Don't think for a minute I hadn't noticed it. Well . . . what I'm trying to say is that it was the first time I ever knew a woman could be so . . square." No response from the girl in the chair. "I guess I'm a good deal of an old fool Thora. But I never hedge when I have something to say. Almost from the first, I found out that I was caring a lot. I knew it, for sure, when Sherm told me the same thing about himself. Then I was positive I was a fool. No girl in her right mind was going to pass up a fellow like Sherm . . . for me. I told him to ... to go ahead. And all the time I wanted to kill him. Yes, I did. I tried to reason it out . . no good. I thought, maybe, I had given it all up. Then, tonight . . . " "I know." a low voice said unexpectedly. "But you don't," Marsh contradicted grimly. "You didn't see yourself come through tile door . . . taking that chance . . . for a bunch like us. When I found myself alive again, well . . . there was nothing to it but you. It's that way now, Thora . . . " "Yes?" "Come closer. I want to see your face." She leaned forward until her face was in the light. "Thora . . . do you think . . . could you ever care a little?" "I could . . . al) there is to care." It was many minutes after that when Selwyn broke a contented silence to say: "I suppose I should feel sorry for old Sherm . . . but 1 don't." He had Thora's hand again, holding it in both his own. "It's stil! true?" he asked, wistfully. "Oh, my dear!" she said softly. "So true . . . you don't know! I'll never be afraid of anything now. It's been dreadful . . . " TSora's voice was very nearly impetuous. "What do you mean? what was dreadful?" "Can't you understand? I found it out, too. I knew it always would be that way, and I was so afraid." "You mean you knew you . . loved me?" Selwyn asked it wonderingly. The word was a diffcult for him. "With all my heart," she whispered. "Always. But it was different tonight. . . ." "You mean when you tackled that chap?" "No . . . when I announced dinner." "I get you," Marsh chuckled. "You thought . . . Dorothy . . ." "Yes." "Why did you break in?" he demanded. "I ... I didn't want her to have you. 1 ' Thora Dahl said gallantly. "Well . . . I didn't either. I told you I was a fool. I came near to being: a ... big one. Let's don't talk about that now. Everything's different now and . . ." A ringing of the telephone cut his words short. Thora released her hand. "I will answer it." she said. In a few minutes, she was back again. To stand looking down into Marsh's face, as if she were uncertain how to frame her message. "Well?" he questioned sharply. "What's happened now? Not that it makes any difference." "That was Pat calling. He wanted to speak to you, but I had him give me the message of course. It's not very good news." "Don't tell me he's bringing that Arab back here again!" "Oh, no. He wanted to let you know that your car is ... gone." "My car gone? Stolen, you mean?" Marsh sat bolt upright. "Who stole it? How did they get it? Tell me!" He said that Mr, Gordon was in the back seat and that Mr. Babbas was up front with him. Mr. Gordon had a gun in his hand . . . but he fell asleep." "Of course," Selwyn grunted. "He would." 'Mr. Babbas must have seen. Pat says he doesn't know just what happened. It was too quick , . . but Mr. Babbas did get the gun and he made Pat and Mr. Gordon get out. He sent word to you that he was sorry he had to take the car, but he was in a hurry." "Some nerve!" "Mr. Gordon and Pat walked a long way, then a car picked them up. He was calling from the police station." Marsh lay back with a disgusted scowl. "I'd give the car to be entirely rid of that fellow. Where were we when that damn phone rang?" (THE END) EARLY ELEVATOR WILL BE RAZED Structure Put Up in Ackley in 1875, Now Being Dismantled. ACKLEY--The oldest elevator in Ackley at present, built about 1870. vhich since 1917 has been owned by the Farmers' Co-Operative company and operated until a year ago, is being dismantled, preparatory for wrecking.
